Trend report: Colour oddities

I have heard the term 'colour-blocking' at least 1649327 times till date. And if you agree with me on this dolls, prepare for the 1649328th time.
In the summer of 2011 when I was a blogging newbie, 'colour-blocking' was the first real trend that I had heard of. I did try my hand at it a couple of times, usually pairing a bright colour which screamed for attention with a neutral which made me feel safe. I wanted to experiment with this fascinating new trend but not go overboard with it and look like I fell into a rainbow. Enter summer of 2012 and this vibrant trend is still around *bigger and badder than before, might I say* While last year was all about becoming aware of it and not going too crazy with it, the trend this year runs in the opposite direction. We usually pick just one or two colours that generally look good together when we're trying it out - like red and blue or green and blue. With a little scouring around the internet, I found a few examples of colour-blocking that not only use a tonne of different colours, but also took such odd colour combinations and made them look so vivacious.

Who said colour-blocking was just for clothes and shoes ?

So did you enjoy the burst of vibrancy ? I sure did. Bright colours have a natural way of making anyone feel happier. As colour-blocking takes charge this summer, be prepared to be smiling all summer long!
Which was your favorite picture ? Mine were the second last and last one. Purple and blue are a combination that I would have never even imagined and well the last one because *looks up at picture* they are so drool-worthy, I don't think I even need to give a reason. 
This summer, lets all get brighter and bolder and take colour-blocking to the max! I plan to, and you ?
